Another year has begun and like most people, my thoughts turn to the past year and everything that has happened in my life—good and bad. At this time, some people make New Year’s resolutions: I don’t. Why bother when I fail to keep them anyway? But, I do contemplate on what has gone before and wonder about what is in store for the unknown future. Maybe I’m more conscious of the New Year than many people because my birthday is at this time—so it’s like a double whammy.
Thinking on where I was at this time last year, I know that physically I was preparing to drive to California in order to spend a week end at the Bodhi Tree Bookstore. I was to promote my book, STAR, present my workshop on reincarnation, and give private Past Life readings. As always, it was so fulfilling to experience the energy of the people who crossed my path during that time. Even the storm than I battled as I drove through the mountains of Northern California was exhilarating—although I didn’t use that word to describe the experience at that time!
Like it has for most of you, this past year has been one of changes and growth for me. From Arizona to Colorado to Washington, and points in between, it never ceased to amaze me as to the trust that people placed in me and accepting of my gift as a Psychic. It continues to amaze me, and I’m very grateful to the people who allow me to enter the innermost sanctums of their psyches, and learn what makes them ‘tick’. These encounters are deeply personal, not just from the perspective of their past lives, but also in relationship to who they are in their present ‘character roles.’ I am humbled and honored by their complete openness. It’s a fact that when we give 10% of ourselves, we get back 100%. This fact is uplifting and empowering.
Looking back over this past year, I realize that it hasn’t been that much different than any other years, unless it’s that I realize the longer I exist in this “Life Story,” the more I learn. And, here again, as with most humans, I’ve learned more from so called ‘bad’ experiences than I have from the good ones.
But most of all, I’ve learned to appreciate this human experience. I appreciate having five senses; being healthy and able to touch my fellow humans, physically as well as spiritually. I’m grateful to feel tears on my face, the sound of laughter, the warmth of a blanket on a cold winter night, and to smell the frosty air and taste hot, spiced cider. I’m thankful for the feel of my cat’s fur and to listen to her purring as she sits on my knee.
How could anyone not be grateful at seeing the delight on the faces of a grandchild as he or she opens Xmas gifts? I’m astonished and awed that such beautiful human beings are a part of my lineage! What a gift.
Most of all—I’m grateful for the Divinity of my Soul.
With all of our many faults, there’s an innate Spiritual goodness in the human race that is as strong as that invisible cord that ties us to our Maker. The human spirit cannot be broken; We need to remember this. It doesn’t matter what time-line we are presently experiencing.
The value of the past is in how we allow it to influence our future.
